Senior Mitch Singstock in Aves Theatre’s “Noises Off”. Singstock as well as the other actors have to utilize their comedic abilities in this production. They have to do slapstick, wordplay, accents, and other things that make this show harder than other plays they may have done in the past.

Aves Theatre’s newest production, Noises Off is a comedic showcase of talented seniors. The performances on Feb. 5 and 6 at 7:30 have been months in the making.

The enormous and complex set began construction at the beginning of the year. Aves Theatre has managed to build half of a house that rotates for different acts.

Senior Emily Misali who plays Dotty said, “At first building the set seemed like an impossible task because it is so huge and complex but we really all came together and worked really hard to make it and it turned out so awesome and it’s really something we are all proud of.”

Beyond the set, Noises Off is a comedic farce that stretches the acting abilities, both verbal and physical, of its actors.

Director Mr. John Whapham said, “In looking at planning for the season this year I noticed we have a lot of really talented folks with great comedic timing and I thought this show would be a great opportunity to showcase them.”
